Family time at the Y is about giving families as a unit, and as individuals, the opportunities to deepen relationships, develop new skills and interests, improve their health and well-being, and connect to the community.

Child Abuse Prevention Sessions

cac-logoJoin our community’s efforts to protect our kids and provide them with a safe, supportive environment in which to learn, grow, and thrive.

The Y has invited the Children’s Advocacy Center to hold a series of information sessions for parents and caregivers about how to prevent and respond to child abuse. Topics include myths and facts, signs and symptoms, how to talk to your kids about staying safe, and how to respond when a child tells about abuse. We strongly encourage adults to attend all three sessions if possible.

All of the sessions are free and open to all parents and caregivers in the community!

Thursday, March 23rd

6:30-7:30 p.m.
Downtown Branch
Topics: Prevention education, child sexual abuse, abuse dynamics, caretaker choices, how to talk to your child about abuse
